GIOVANNI VACCARINI architetto designed the ‘Bamboo Towers’ in United Arab Emirates.
Description from the architects:
The project “Bamboo Towers” is situated on the South-West Dubai coast, on the west crescent of Palm Jabel Alì. The site is composed by the aggregation of three areas of about 5000 sq.m., for a total of about 15.000 sq.m.. On the three next areas, the masterplan foresees the realization of threedistinct buildings (for a maximum of two of the three areas) joined by a common basement.
The maximum height foresees the development of twenty floors out of land, a height, that considering the covered surfaces, would bring to the design of a building with a relationship among width and height around 1:1 .
The idea of project is that to draw a group of nine buildings in the place of three isolated buildings: a forest of “bamboo”; a solution that, fragmenting the covered surfaces, hands to very slender buildings able to orient in a optimal way the leans out toward the sea or toward the mirror of water inside the Palm Jabel Alì.
The towers are drawn by concentric bands that, in plant, define some external “screening” spaces of the wrap of closing, and a series of concentric rings in high, that constitute the principal topic of the architectural party.
The towers find their architectural connotation as system of buildings / bamboo, a series and not only one. The series of concentric rings, in the daytime mark the volumes with their different brought shades, while, at night they become circles that flow on the surface of the towers.
